This course builds upon the foundation of the basic design course. The focus will be on the information presented
in the Certified Florist (CF) Manual with the goal of preparing students to take the CF examination. (Students who do not
wish to take the CF exam will still be welcome.) The CF manual is the text for this course. You may purchase this manual at www.michiganfloral.org or call 517-575-0110.
This manual is recommended but not required. All other materials will be included in the registration fee.
Time will be divided between lecture and hands-on design. A sample test will be given on each topic. Lecture topics include:
care and handling of flowers and plants, product identification, customer relations, sales, delivery, marketing, accounting,
display, and intermediate floral design. Design topics include vase arrangements, bridal bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres
, and sympathy. Designs will incorporate the contemporary techniques of grouping, layering, basing, framing, and many
more. Each day you will take home your designs.
There are 36 hours of classroom instruction. Since this is a personal
enrichment course there will be no exams. Includes all flowers and supplies. Lunch on your own. The limited course
enrollment of 6 will ensure that each student receives personal attention.
Bring your own tools (pruner, scissors, wire cutter, needle-nose pliers, and knife).
